as the prime minister of pakistan and are meeting with president karzai. it was an interesting juxtaposition as we looked to the military component what is happening on the government's side in both pakistan and afghanistan. when it comes to the governance issue in afghanistan, in our meeting with president karzai, he stressed very much the significance of the upcoming parliamentary elections. the need to ensure that under the afghan constitution, that process moves forward to clearly define or establish the legitimacy of the afghan government and their processes as they move ahead. we also had an opportunity to visit the police training centers there in kabul. very important to understand the progress that is being made at the afghan army is being trained. they truly are operating at a deficit in terms of the numbers and bringing more recruits in, but what they have seen in the past several months has been remarkable in terms of the numbers of recruits that have come in. we met with the minister of defense, who indicated that just in the past month, the number of recruits that they have rec

as a combination of president musharraf and hamid karzai. he's a man who rules with an iron fist. his forces are killing his own people. he does not tolerate religious minorities. on the other side, he has an incredibly corrupt administration. so in some ways, he embodies the worst of both pakistan and afghanistan's leaders. >> what do you make of our sending back people over there for rehabilitation? i mean, one of the handlers of the attacker on christmas day was apparently sent back with the theory that he had been rehabilitated through art training. >> yes, he had been sent to saudi arabia, and saudi arabia has a rehabilitation program that gets quite high marks from people from independent observers, people in this country who have taken a close look at it. there's always going to be a few people who fall through, a few people who escape, if you like, the system. it's clear some of these people are turning up. saudi arabia, keep in mind, has been cracking down on al qaeda and its own borders, and a lot of those people have been fleeing across the borders to yemen. so the situation in ye

in afghanistan. president karzai today in fact said that he believes that the insurgents will definitely be invited to the peace talks, and what do you think about that idea? >> well, in general, jill, you don't make peace with the friends, but with your enemies. there are clear conditions. you must renounce violence, you must lay down your arms, you must renounce al qaeda, and you must be willing to live by the laws in the constitution of afghanistan. so, i think that this is the way that peace usually gets made. you send out feelers and see who is willing to lay down their arms and abide by the conditions. you see how far up that will go, and i don't expect mullah omar and others to come this way and they have made clear they won't, but there are others who will be seeing these astringent conditions as a formidable task. a >> and now to jill townsend who was a senior strategist to president bush, what do you feel of this? >> well, you want to peel off the foot soldiers who are in it because they are intimidated and the only way to protect the families yochlt wau tont pull them away fro

that his concerns about president karzai are any different today? that anything has changed since -- >> again, i don't want to get into discussing those cables. i would simply say that at the conclusion of the election, the president had -- president obama had a conversation with president karzai. i think you heard the president speak clearly at west point and since then about the need to take governance seriously. that there was not an open-ended blank check for waste and abuse going forward in afghanistan. and the president and his team, and particularly ambassador eikenberry would be paying close attention. >> understanding your refusal to increase operations -- or to move to north waziristan to the north for a year and that was pretty clear on that strategy that there be something on that side of the border going on. >> let me see what i can get from d.o.d. for you. >> back to the state of the union. ask about the tone, are we going to see the president chastened by massachusetts or of the any developments of the past year? are we seeing a feisty defiant president kind of like
